Welcome back to Week 2 of the 2017 SPRING – ONE ROOM CHALLENGE
If you are new to the ORC each year Linda of Calling It Home host a Spring and Fall ORC where Guest Participants bloggers are invited to redo a room in 6 weeks.
More than 260 bloggers participated last Fall, so tons of inspiration for everyone.
My room this go round is my Guest Bedroom
Since we moved in a little over a year ago it has NOT gotten any TLC
After building the new house I didn’t have the money all at once to redo each rooms furnishings.
So I have been styling them one at a time and as money permits.
Lots of DIY and furniture makeovers stretch my decorating dollars.

This is the bedroom from where we started. I know, pretty sad.
It rovided a place for guest to sleep, but that is about all it provided.
I have lots planned to brighten the room and make it welcoming and relaxing.
Let’s get to the progress for WEEK 2 ……………..
The room has been cleared of most the old furniture, rug and clutter.
New Bed and mattress arrived and is assembled. I would of waited to put the bed up, since the room is getting new paint, but this room will be used this weekend even though it is in the middle of renovation.
Iron Black/Bronze bed. To me this bed frame is black not bronze. The Restonic Hybrid Mattress Comfortcare is a firm mattress with a pillow top memory foam design. I will be posting a follow up review of the mattress in the future weeks.
It took us several weeks to decide on a mattress, I will let you know how we came to settle on this particular Restonic Hybrid mattress in another post.
My plan is to paint the nightstands and the big dresser
Here is my wish list for the room:
- New Bed and Mattress
- Comforter & Bedding
- Night stands (I will be painting the ones we have)
- Accent chair for window area (ordered)
- Wall Art
- Area Rug (deciding on 2 options)
- Paint Walls (paint by Sherwin Williams China Doll)
- Throw Pillows
- Miscellaneous items
Ok, so my plan is to start on the furniture painting this week.
Are you planning on a room makeover soon? Need inspiration?
